First glue the battery pack to the back of the solar panel, make sure the solar panel has a diode, if not then add one to the pos. wire, the silver end of the diode is power out to the battery, put a 1" piece of shrink tube to all wire connections before you connect them as you can not do it after connecting them, solder all connections and heat the shrink tube to seal the connections, connect the wires from the panel to the battery [pos. to pos. and neg. to neg.] also connect the light sensor in wires to the battery pack, then connect a piece of speaker wire to the out wires from the light sensor.
